Sufferin’ Succotash!

It has been miserably hot this week, but today has been really insufferable! Last night we had a tremendous storm with a deluge of rain driven by wicked winds. Stepping outdoors this morning to surmise any damage that may have occurred, my thoughts drifted to what the climate might have been like millions of years ago when dinosaurs roamed the earth stomping through jungles of overgrown vegetation, steam rising from the ground, and swamps dotting the landscape. It was so hot and humid this morning as I cleared debris that had been strewn about by gale-force winds. Several trees that had fallen, but fortunately nothing of significant consequence was amiss. This weather truly makes me lethargic and I can say without reservation that I have accomplished absolutely nothing this week. My creativity is at a standstill and frankly, I’ve just been vegetating.

But, timing is everything…while I have been lackadaisical, to my delight Susan Lenart’s latest book “Intentional Metalsmithing” arrived in my mailbox last Monday. I’ve had a very pleasant time perusing pages that are rich with beautiful photographs of jewelry accompanied with IM course instruction. Each page is a delight to behold! Rings, pendants, bracelets embellished with gorgeous gemstones and surface decoration…oh, my! Honestly, if this doesn’t get my creativity flowing again, nothing will!
